Singer Rihanna has been named as the richest female musician in the UK with an estimated fortune worth N219 billion (£468m).
The singer, who moved to London in 2019, has overtaken Elton John and Mick Jagger to claim third place in the UK musician category.
Andrew Lloyd Webber and Paul McCartney are joint first, with fortunes of N375 billion (£800m) each according to The Sunday Times Rich List.
Rihanna's wealth can be attributed to her partnership with the French luxury goods brand, LVMH.
Her cosmetics label Fenty Beauty is valued at £2.45b, with the 32-year-old having reported 15% stake worth £351m.
Rihanna has not released an album since 2016's. Her fortune makes her the richest female musician not just in the UK, but the world.
